It has been eight years since I was last pregnant and have seemed to forget everything! My breasts are in extreme pain, I know there is soreness and tenderness, but any ways to relieve this symptoms or soothe them ? Thanks so very much.
I'm sorry. I have the same problem and haven't found much relief. Keeping them in one position, such as in a bra is the best I can do. But they still feel like frozen cantaloupes and my nipples are constantly burning. I was prepared for slight tenderness...but not such pain this early on. Some people recommend heat compresses so you could try that, but the shower even bothers mine.
I have found that massage has helped alleviate some discomfort, that and warm/hot compresses or showers for sure. I just firmly apply some pressure and sweep from the center, down around the bottom and up the side a few times and it seems to help. Also, wearing a softer bra with support, or even just a cami, can be nice.
Hope it helps! I feel your pain!
